It’s weird to think that it’s been over 4 years since I wrote about the Humble Weekly Sale: Telltale Games. While some games make a return, many others have joined the roster of Telltale Games. Some I already reviewed, some I’m looking forward to play and write about, so this is really a great way to experience new and old adventure and interactive story games.
Paying 1 or more dollars gives you Sam & Max: Season 1, Sam & Max: Season 2, Puzzle Agent 1, Puzzle Agent 2, Bone – Episode 1 & Episode 2, Hector: Badge of Carnage, Telltale Texas Hold’em, Poker Night at the Inventory, and The Walking Dead – Season 1. I already reviewed Puzzle Agent, Puzzle Agent 2, and The Walking Dead: Season 1, but the other games are just as recommendable, even more so, because Sam & Max harks back to a time when Telltale did puzzle-heavy titles and used lesser known but still fun comic adaptations like Bone. Having poker games with the Telltale Games characters is also pretty cool, while the Hector game is great as well.
Paying less than 10 Dollars unlocks Sam & Max: Devil’s Playhouse, Poker Night 2, The Walking Dead: 400 Days, The Walking Dead – Season 2, The Walking Dead: Michonne, Tales from the Borderlands, Game of Thrones, Jurassic Park: The Game, The Wolf Among Us, plus a The Walking Dead: A New Frontier 50% off Humble Store coupon. I only covered The Walking Dead: 400 Days in this review, but the rest of the series should also be quite good. There isn’t anything more to say about the third Sam & Max adventure than that it’s absolute genius. I’m not sure about Jurassic Park, as it didn’t get the best of scores, but being a fan of the movies (even the ones that didn’t get much love), it’s great to finally have the game. The same holds true for the other titles. Considering that these go for much higher prices at the moment (or even during sales), 10 Dollars isn’t that much money actually.
Finally if you decide to spend 15 Dollars or more, more recent releases will be made available with Batman – The Telltale Series, Minecraft: Story Mode, and Minecraft: Story Mode – Adventure Pass. The difference between the two Minecraft games is that the first one only includes the five already released episodes, while the second one has episodes 6, 7, and 8 as they become available. After Telltale recently revealed the continuation of three series (The Walking Dead: The Final Season, A Wolf Among Us: Season 2, and Batman: The Enemy Within), there’s just enough time to delve into the company’s past with this bundle and even support a charity. But don’t wait too long, because the offer expires in about two days.
